While the aims and intentions of those interested were all that could be desired, one could not fail to realize the waste there was in time, energy, ability, material, and money, on account of the lack of proper business methods.In the early training of a day that is gone, education in the business and proper conduct of meetings was not deemed a necessity for women. As the need of such knowledge made itself more and more felt, requests for information and instruction came to me on every hand, and appeals for personal help were much too numerous for private correspondence.

I did this, and, at his further request, revised and extended the manual.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
